The TV journalist Skye Daley (Brooke Shields) hosts the boastful actor Ricky Coogan (Alex Winter) to tell his recent adventure in Central America. Ricky accepts to promote the toxic fertilizer Zygrot 24 from the E.E.S. Corporation in Santa Flan; in return, he would receive US$ 5,000,000 from the corrupt E.E.S. Chairman Dick Brian (William Sadler). He travels with his best friend Ernie (Michael Stoyanov) to Santa Flan and on the arrival, they meet the gorgeous Julie (Megan Ward), who is protesting against the Zygrot 24. Ricky lures her telling that Ernie and he are protesters and she joins the two friends in a trip to the E.E.S. Soon she discovers the truth but they are in the middle of nowhere and she goes with them. They decide to take a detour to see the Freakland Carnival and they meet the owner Elijah C. Skuggs (Randy Quaid) and his henchmen Toad (Jaime Cardriche). Soon they learn that Skuggs is an insane genius that uses a machine that processes the Zygrot 24 to transform normal people into hideous mutants to work in his sideshow. Ricky is transformed in a monster and Julie and Ernie are merged in conjoined monsters. What will happen to our heroes?
"Freaked" is a politically incorrect black comedy with a surrealistic story about a sideshow where the attractions are made by the insane owner of the carnival. This film is still funny and cult after watching many times. It is impossible to recognize the uncredited Keanu Reeves, in the role of Ortiz the Dog Boy. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Freaklândia: O Parque dos Horrores" ("Freakland: The Horror Carnival")
